You can recreate a player piano scroll, or the drum on a music box with the online generator Music Box Fun! Place your notes along the grid on a 15, 20, or 30 note scale and see what happens (if you need sharps and flats, select the 30-note scale). Bryan Braun tells us how he came to build this toy. Yeah, you could pull out a score from the piano bench and build it quickly, or just fool around like me, or if you know a bit about music you can show off your chops with a familiar tune or even an original.

People who know what they’re doing have shared their creations. To get an idea of what it could sound like, here’s the theme from Jeopardy! And here’s “Bohemian Rhapsody,” although you’ll want to speed up the tempo to listen to it. If you make something with this, let us know! -via Laughing Squid
